I don't have a problem with people being opposed to this plan. I do have a problem with people lying about it. If the only way you can fight the plan is to make up lies that will frighten the elderly, maybe that means you don't really have any good, valid reasons to oppose it. Because if you had good, valid reasons, surely you would be discussing those instead of claiming that "old people will be given a pill."
Her three sons are also opposed to this plan. They feel universal insurance is socialism, and this country is already inching too close to socialism. What, you might ask, do these sons of hers do for a living? Two are firefighters. One works for the city's water department. Huh. Programs that provide for the public and are paid for by the taxpayers. OMG, you guys, it's socialism!!! Run for the hills!!!
I want to tell J's aunt that she's right, she'll be given a pill, and the way the government will find those who are pillworthy is by checking the rolls of other socialist government-run, taxpayer-funded programs. So she better drop out of Social Security, Medicare, and railroad retirement. But she's a sweet lady and I love her, so I won't say that. Instead, I'll just hope some new crime grabs her attention so she can go back to watching Nancy Grace all day instead of whatever idiot she's watching on Fox News.
*And if you can do the math, you probably learned how to do it in public school. Which is run by the government and supported by taxpayers. OMFG, more socialism!!!
